From Product Owner to Product Samuari

Posted on January 16, 2018

How to become a Product Samurai?

Agile transformation does not mean more effectiveness. We adopt a new way of working but what does it take to reap the benefits? How can the small (Scrum) team beat the incumbent competitor? How can a new product outgrow the companies flagship product? How can a 7 year old judoka throw a much larger and stronger opponent?

Using the principles of Judo we explore what makes Agile product development effective. We make a deep dive in the character traits and behavior of the product owner and finally we look at the environment, what do you need to build products, companies and people to dominate your competitors.
